    Vikings contact Alterraun Verner - ESPN 1500 Twin Cities and NFL_ATL

    Michael Johnson is in "heavy negotiations" with a "few teams", the Eagles are NOT one of those teams despite rumors they were very interested in him - Tim McManus

    Hakeem Nicks linked to Ravens and Patriots, Drs. James Andrews and Robert Anderson have both cleared him 100% medically and sent letters of recommendation to all 32 teams - ESPN's Chris Mortenson

    profootballtalk indicating that Nicks may be willing to do a one-year, prove it type of deal. This is the only way I'd be interested, and then I'd be quite interested. If he was playing with fire and determination to try and get paid, I'd have hopes that he would. If he wants a multi-year deal his past loafing ways would give me significant pause.

    Underhill reports that NE has not reached out to any of the top CBs from what he keeps hearing.

    1 year deal is something we should re evaluate, it only hurts the team because everybody aside ochocinco makes a good film here and then go get the big bucks on the market.

    If we sign Nicks, I hope a good for both sides 2 years deal to be made.

    Yes - you want to be able to lock a guy in for year 2 - at which point if he's worth that salary you negotiated for year 2 you extend him anyways

    Kindof like Stallworth a few years back. Signed a reasonable Year 1 contract - but had a $6 million roster bonus due before free agency. With Moss established as the #1 WR there was no way he was staying at that price - good insurance but with Moss they didn't need him.

    Had Moss flamed out and Stallwroth done well, they still would have reduced that cap hit by extending him - but he was locked in regardless.

    Kind of what we'd have liked to see with Edelman, although on a much lesser scale ? ;)

    Of course hindsight is always 20/20, so I'm really just kidding.

    That's the hope, and exactly what I was thinking as well.

    Of course, there's always the possibility that they only have 2 options that they're considering just as well.

    #1 keeping Talib, and #2 using Dennard, Ryan, and Arrington with the addition of another draft choice OR using the money on safety instead.

    Wait, I lost track. I think that's officially 3 options :)

    Not sure if Jets have had contact with his camp yet, but they've expressed interest in Verner. Pretty much says that Cro is already gone. They're shopping for his replacement and won't pay both.

    Just for fun**:

    **I have never heard of PFC before and have no clue how legit they are, but they've been talking a lot today. Possibly just another Erika Leigh.

    With the Redskins interested in Talib, I hope the Patriots cover their butt
    and start looking at cornerbacks.

    how do you equate ocho cinco with Hakeem nicks? Nicks is 26. Ocho was 33 when he signed with NE.

    More likely they'll be praying that Gilbert, Dennard or Fuller fall to them, which is possible.
